Hey guys wondering, have a guy whose cabin lawn on a lake is completely rolled up and dug up, large area like it is pealed right up. Sure tehy are after grubs but help me identify the culprit if you can. Thanks.

It sounds like the work of one of more raccoons to me.

May be crows, first time I seen a lawn like that was at at week end home, Put a camera up, The crows would show up early and start turning the lawn after grubs.

Coons cause most all of the sod roll back damage most likely, crows and turkeys come in for the easy pickings. I have seen opossums grubbing also but they leave damage more like skunks with their pointed snouts.

Coon family units are out now nationwide learning the ropes from mom. Grubbing, digging and similiar such forageing for ripening berries, fruits and wild cherries are on the diet.

Some water patrols are also going on at this time. Woodsy born animals hunt what they have to forage, urban coon families hit the garbage can areas, dumpsters, cat /dog food feeders, back yard grilling areas etc.

Tis the time of year. School is in session..................

I agree with it probably being coons but, don't rule out a badger. I've seen them work right along with coons destroying a golf course.

Bears will also join in once the coons get things started.

Need to kill the food source. Grubs eat the roots which makes it possible to roll the turf up like fresh laid sod.
The problem is though, is that right now, most of the grubs will be too deep in the soil to treat them properly. Fall and Spring is when the grubs are up high enough in the soil for pesticides to be effective on solving the grub problem.
